“So I can’t communicate with her now that she’s in cat form?” The professor asked your friend.
“That’s right, O professor.” She replied smuggly. “Didn’t think this through very well did you?”
“Ok so now what?” You meowed at him.
He turned and looked at you.
“Umm Y/N, can you respond to yes and no questions by nodding or shaking your head?” He asked.
“OH! Fantastic!” He replied happily. “Do you feel any different than usual?”
You shook your head.
“Ok, can you deactivate your quirk and shapeshift back at will?” He asked.
You focused but nothing happened and you gave him an odd look.
“Can you change back?” He asked again.
You shook your head slowly.
Your friend saw your response and hopped up from her chair quickly, running over to you.
“Y/N, change back.” She demanded, grabbing your soft furry cheeks in her hands and smooshing your face as she leaned in and stared you down.
You looked deep into her eyes and tried to change back again but couldn’t.
“I uh…I can’t?” You meowed with confusion.
“Oh my GOD!” Your friend yelped. “SHE’S STUCK IN CAT FORM!” She let go of your face and spun to face the professor. “THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!”
“Come now, let’s not panic.” The professor said calmly, “she will probably be able to turn back in a few more minutes. Her quirk has been extended so it may be in a stronger form so that she can’t control it at this point but as it starts to wear off she might be able to control the activation again.”
“That’s all fine for you to say!” Your friend shot at him. “You’re not the one stuck in cat form!” She said, throwing her arm out and gesturing to you as if to point to exhibit A, the case en point.
“Has anyone asked how I feel about this?” You meowed suddenly.
They both looked at you.
“THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!! I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!” You meowed enthusiastically.
“Oh my god she’s freaking out!” F/N cried. “Y/N, Y/N it’s ok babes, stay calm, we’ll change you back!”
“No you idiot I’m happy that I’m stuck in cat form!” You hissed at her.
“It’s ok, don’t be angry with this idiot professor! He’ll change you back soon.” Your friend said, glaring darkly at the now apprehensive professor, interpreting your hiss as anger at this whole situation.
You scowled at your friend and walked over to the edge of the examination bed and reached your head out to the professor, trying to rub your head against his arm.
Instinctively he reached out to you and you purred your thanks to him as his hand came in contact with your head.
“I…think she’s happy?” The professor said quietly, watching as you shut your eyes contently and let him give you a pat.
There was a moments silence then your friend sighed.
“That would be right.” She said in a dead tone. “She’s probably stoked that she can’t turn back into a human.”
You opened one eye and looked at your friend, nodding as you still received pats from the professor.
She groaned and shook her head.
“So what now?” Your friend asked the professor. “Do we stay here and wait for the quirk enhancement thing to wear off?”
“Well yes, that would be best.” The professor said. “I might need to take some more blood samples so I can determine what is going on while she’s in quirk form.”
You sat back on the bed and just looked at the two of them as they continued to chat.
Finally after discussing a few more things the professor turned to you.
“Now. Can I take some more blood samples?” He asked you.
You lay back down on the bed in compliance and your friend snorted with amusement.
“That would be a yes I assume?”
“I’m going to have to shave a part of your leg, Y/N, so that I can find the vein… If that’s alright?” The professor asked.
You nodded again and watched as he walked to a drawer nearby and took out a razor before coming back and gently taking your front left leg in hand.
“Ok, here we go….”
After taking more samples of blood and checking them under the microscope he came back to discuss the results.
“Uh…ok… I have some good news and maybe some bad news…” he said hesitantly as he took a seat next to you on the examination bed.
You cocked your head at him, waiting for him to continue.
“Ok, the good news is, your quirk has DEFINITELY been extended… so that’s wonderful…” he said, then paused.
“CONTINUE.” Your friend snapped loudly from behind him.
You both jumped.
“Uh… well, it appears that it has been extended for an undefined amount of time.” The professor added sheepishly.
“Undefined meaning…?” Your friend prompted as you looked from her back to the professor.
“Undefined meaning for an unspecified amount of time…leaning more towards the permanent end of the ‘time’ spectrum.” The professor added hesitantly.
“Oh. My. God. Y/N IS PERMANENTLY A CAT NOW???” Your friend gasped.
“For the foreseeable future, yes.” The professor said. “But I will be working on a reversal, I can promise you that!”
“Wait so I can spend an UNLIMITED amount of time with Shinsou now?? Is that what you’re saying???” You meowed, standing up with a very happy look on your face.
Your friend looked at you. “That look on your face looks…. happy?….You’re happy?”
You nodded enthusiastically while purring.
“Y/N I must warn you though, the longer you remain in cat form the more you will find cat-like qualities manifesting and at first you may be able to suppress these desires but over time you might not.” He said. “So if you feel the need to chase birds, laser beams or even lick yourself clean then don’t be too alarmed.”
“Oh….ok that’s gonna be weird but I guess it’s not too bad?” You thought as you just blinked at him. “A small price to pay really…”
“Ok well, I’ll continue looking into your quirk.” The professor said, “you are welcome to stay around but I can’t guarantee that I’ll have the the reversing serum ready by today, it will take some time.”
“So…. now we go and come back another day?” F/N asked the professor.
“Well yes, that would be the best option right now seeing as I don’t think Y/N will be able to change back anytime soon.” He replied.
“I don’t mind.” You meowed.
“Y/N you can come to mine if you want.” Your friend say with a sigh as you turned to you.
“You’d better have that serum done in a timely manner.” Your friend snapped at the professor as she turned to him and held up a warning index finger followed by pointing to her eyes then his eyes then back again, the sign for ‘I’m watching you.’
You jumped down off the examination table and rubbed yourself against the professors leg, meowing your thanks to him for him turning you into a cat permanently, before turning to your friend and trotting beside her as she headed out of the room.
The whole way back to her house she was semi fuming and muttering about ‘disaster’ and ‘can’t trust your stupid ass’ as you pattered silently beside her, a stupid big grin on your fluffy little cat face with your tail straight up in the air and flicking slightly with happiness.
